Sweet Potato Festival Activities
November 7, 2012By Patti Harrell of Vardaman High School
The Sweet Potato Festival Arts and Crafts Day was a huge success this year. It is during this time of year that our community and our school work closely together. Several teachers work on committees to organize the week's activities, and the majority of our students participate as well.
During the Arts and Crafts Day, teachers and students can be seen working booths, assisting visitors in locating a parking space, and loading boxes of sweet potatoes into patrons' vehicles. The students also participate in the writing and art contests, exhibiting their creative skills. Several students also participate in the pageants that occur during the week. And each year, our senior run the town for a day.
